The next docent training class starts on January 21, 2015. Here is the class schedule (pdf) which provides some additional details on the training program. Class registration is open now and closes January 14, 2015.
Docents lead free, three-hour hikes on weekend mornings from mid-March through mid-June at Edgewood Park. We talk about wildflowers, plant communities and why Edgewood is special. During training classes you will learn about the history, topography, geology, plant communities, and wildflowers of Edgewood as well as how to lead a hike. Each class is followed by a hike in Edgewood on the following Saturday morning.
After training, you will be assigned an experienced docent for a “one-on-one” training experience and will also observe or help lead one or two Wildflower Walks during the spring.
